This report traces the human rights abuses under King Hassan II—including arbitrary arrest, torture, and disappearance—that led to the development of the Moroccan Equity and Reconciliation Commission (Instance Équité et Réconciliation (IER)). It provides both a historical reference and lays the foundation for a more thorough analysis once the Commission's work has been completed. It also offers several recommendations to bolster and augment Morocco's truth-seeking experience in the coming months and years.
